TLDR; A global community sharing/promoting wellness practices across digital and physical spaces.
“Wellness” can mean different things to different people. Physical fitness? Mental health? Emotional stability? Spiritual growth? All of the above?
These are all dimensions of wellness, and they’re all interdependent and interlinked. The mind affects the body, the body affects the mind, and the spirit affects both. This community is about all of these things. We’re all about supporting each other in our active pursuit of better health, well-being, and coming back to who we truly are.
In short, we’re about living well.
Our mission is to amplify the focus on wellness amidst the chaos of our world today. We are creating a holistic wellness community that combines personal & professional coaching, real human connections, shared experiences, tools & frameworks for living well, and above all, a strong and compassionate support network. We share conscious practices with each other, bridging digital and physical mediums to practice together and live well.
The speed and force with which web3 is evolving foretells a shift in how organizations, products, teams, and missions will be built in the future. Our team recognizes the benefits (speed to market, cross-border collaboration, community focus) and the drawbacks (constant FOMO, 24/7 market alerts, hustle culture).
Our team’s focus & excitement has shifted from single-purpose DAOs, which can be transient and outcome-dependent, to mission-driven DAOs, with long-term, meaningful goals - and communities to match. With wellnessDAO, we aim to provide a space where people can share, grow, and learn from different practices and create life-long bonds with one another.
wellnessDAO is the future of community-driven wellness — a modern health and wellness club, dedicated to elevating our global community’s collective psyche through digital and physical experiences. To expand beyond the dynamically changing web3/NFT space, we are opening up a dialogue around spiritual growth and caring for our psychological needs. What better way to be inspired than to cultivate your own growth while building meaningful relationships world-wide?
Ultimately, our goal is to own physical land and build a holistic, integrated wellness center for community members. This will be the first practice-agnostic retreat, serving as a blank canvas for coaches, practitioners, and instructors to create unique experiences chosen by the DAO. As cited in our values below, wellnessDAO will be completely unbiased, empowering members of our community to discover their own personalized set of wellness practices.
Wellness is personal. This loaded term can mean different things to different people! Everyone is the driver of their own journey, and it is the responsibility of each individual to define what wellness means to us. wellnessDAO is here to provide a community and network to help us along that journey.
Wellness is multi-dimensional. For every person, there are many important aspects of wellness to consider — physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and more. Understanding and assessing all of these different types of wellness is critical to knowing ourselves, and prioritizing personal investments to improve our wellbeing.
Wellness is a spectrum. Sick / Well doesn’t exist as a binary like a light switch that is either ON or OFF. At different points in our lives, we’re all somewhere on a spectrum for each dimension of wellness. Our status for each dimension is constantly changing, and can differ. Our physical health might be a 10, for example, but our mental health a 3. We want our community to provide guidance for everyone, no matter where they are on the wellness spectrum at any given time.
In a digital economy that profits off our attention and consumption of ”junk” content, wellness is a lifelong journey to align our physical, spiritual, and mental states to values that uplift, that empower, and that free. Wellness is a broad category, and there are many different sub-communities that will form within our ecosystem. Psychedelics, bio-hacking, meditation, diet and nutrition, exercise science, trauma healing, shadow work, talk therapy, financial literacy, relationship work - there are so many different approaches to wellness that it can be overwhelming without proper guidance and a community to lean on.
Each of us are at our own point in our wellness journeys; no two people are in the same place, or even on the same path. We all have our own life experiences, belief systems, thoughts, feelings, and perspectives. We all live unique lives.
However, humans are social creatures. Despite our differences, we try to find common ground, and express our ideas and opinions to each other. It’s in our nature to connect.
wellnessDAO exists to connect individuals seeking full, enriched lives. We’ll introduce each other to different approaches to wellness, and create a platform for open discussion and learning. Together, our members will review and decide how to each approach the different dimensions of wellness.
In-person connection is essential for this to come to life. Digital content, zoom calls, and text groups have their value - but the real magic of a community happens when we’re together, sharing authentic moments in a physical space.
We are redefining the value of a community in terms of human connection, not an economic exchange of profit-generating tokens. We are building the compassion economy.
If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, we’d love for you to join us on this journey!
